A 90 minute walk through Worcester's history. Paul brings to life so many parts of Worcester's history not just the civil war. He is very knowledgeable and presents the information in a lively and entertaining way.

This is the third tour we have had with Paul and Discover History. This one was entitled Arts and Ale houses of Worcester. As always Paul kept us gripped as we wandered around Worcester looking upwards and seeing the history of the city before our eyes. Paul covered diverse topics such as the showing of the first King Kong at... More

We took the 11am tour with Robert and were not disappointed. With great enthusiasm he took us from place to place and really gave us a feel for the history of this pretty town. The tour took 2 hours so be prepared, but we enjoyed every minute of it and all of the enthusiasm that Robert brought to it.

An excellent guide who delivered information with interest and enthusiasm regardless of the rain. He brought the history of the town to life; his explanations created a vision of past buildings, wars and development.

On a cold night our guide was very enthusiastic and proud of his birth place. He showed us many unusual things and explained in great detail the history of this wonderful city in a tour that covered many of the streets and alleyways. It was great value for money and we would certainly do another tour on our next visit... More

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable & proud of her home town and made the tour interesting and entertaining. Bargain at £5 for an hour and a half. We were asked if there were any particular areas of interest so that the tour can be tailored. Worcester is the ideal size for a walking tour, lots to see in a... More

We had an amazing tour with Paul. He is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Worcester history and there is a lot of it. He took us to some of the earliest buildings and pointed out some that had been "modernized" but if you looked closely you could see the very old timber frames. We learned about the different periods of... More

We were treated to 'A right Royal Tour' by Paul of Discover History last night. It was such fun and Paul has a superb way of making it exciting and interesting. Paul does many different tours of the city and it is well-worth coming along to take part.
